About My Clients

I enjoy working with clients who identify as LGBTQ +; clients who live with depression, anxiety, and trauma. I have a passion for individuals with dual diagnoses as well. I can work across the life span, such as clients of all ages, couples, and individuals. I enjoy making the therapy process feel more like a conversation rather than a sterile clinical experience. I like to design therapy sessions that will be productive and value the client's time.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Masters Social Worker, and I received my bachelor's of social work at Appalachian State University. In addition, I received a Master's of Social Work and a substance abuse certificate from Western Carolina University. I have worked in mental health and chemical dependency for approximately 20 years. I have worked in acute care, inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation, and outpatient therapy. My approach to therapy is simple. It is about you, the client. This is your time and your issues. I believe in a client centered approach, that empowers the client to over come obstacles they are facing. The treatment modalities that I most often use are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Family Emotional Systems Theory, and Person Centered Theory. I have found these theories to be most useful for the client, depending on the issue we are working on, of course.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we all encounter obstacles in our lives that are sometimes overwhelming and cause us much grief. That sometimes we need a little help to overcome the obstacles life has presented to us. I also believe that we all have the ability to adapt and change if we are given the right tools to aid in recovery from the problems. I make it my mission to work collaboratively with the client as they are the experts of their own lives.
